At Somerset College, we have a range of dining and food purchase options to meet the needs of our students, staff and parents. These options are available at a number of café and dining areas across the College campus.

The Dining Hall

The Dining Hall, on the third floor of The Ray Building, allows all students from Years 3 to 12 to enjoy a sit down lunch in an air-conditioned environment. Year 3 students will sit in the alfresco area outside the Retail Centre. Students may bring their own lunch or a range of hot and cold foods are available for purchase using a student smart card. Options include weekly hot meals, a salad bar, cold drinks and fresh fruits. Gluten free, vegetarian and special dietary requirements are catered for on request. Please contact our chef if required.

The Bird and Bush Café

The Bird and Bush Café is located in The Retail Centre and operates daily from 7.30am to 4.00pm, serving breakfast, morning tea and lunch. Students purchase with their smart cards. Parents are invited to enjoy a coffee and a meal from the daily menu in the alfresco area.

Café MacKenzie

Café MacKenzie, located off the Dr Peter Brown Building, operates daily from 7.30am to 11.15am. Breakfast, light meals, snacks and coffees are available. Students purchase with their SmartCards. EFTPOS payWave is available at this location.

Somerset College is cashless in all retail and dining environments for both students and staff. Our use of smartcards via My Student Account avoids the necessity of students carrying cash. Smartcards also facilitate minimal queues for food purchases, while allowing parents full visibility on all transactions and the ability to set a daily spend limit. All parents will be notified of their account details and can log on to My Student Account to top up account balances.

Online ordering through My Student Account is available for students in Pre Prep to Year 3 for morning tea and lunch, and orders are delivered directly to the classroom. From Term Three, Year 3 Students will purchase via their Smart Cards at The Bird and Bush. Please see the weekly menus in the resources section on this page for the food options.
